8:13.878

Loeb & the Peugeot 208T16 PP decimate the old Pikes Peak record of 9:46.146 by a minute and a half ... a minute and a half faster on a 9 minute course.  Has there ever been a record shattered by that much, in any form of timed sport?  OK, the road is fully paved this year, but it was only a small section that remained gravel, not accountable for a minute and a half.



Peugeot/Loeb sponsor Redbull have a few Pikes Peak stories up, including this one with some thoughts from Michele Mouton on Loeb and her wins in 1984 & 1985: My Pikes Peak: Michele Mouton
